My 6100/66 is hybrid. It has 66Mhz PPC and 486/66 Dos in one machine. So no chance of getting a g3 update in that machine.
it's simply not compatible with the 486/66 in the PDS slot. More 6100/DOS on LGR: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9UclHrIIaYA

btw. the 486 card has a real SB with a real OPL3 ! https://www.flickr.com/photos/94839221@N05/26 … 57665671196304/
to get an impression I made a (sorry for the bad image-quality) video of it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=39yxfxbqda8
(I also added linux/ppc on that machine lately)

You could always remove the DOS compatibility card and put a G3 or G4 accelerator card in there.

yes but not both at the same time and because the 6100 uses onboard-gfx shared with memory,
it's better to go with g3/g4 and hardware-acc-gfx. beside that it's a really good comparision because both systems have 66Mhz. You can easily compare PPC against X86. 😀 In short: it fits better if you like both os and do not have enough space for two machines...

That's what I thought, you'd probably like what I've been posting in the retro OS/software purchases thread!

Just got my 6100 out yesterday, why do I have 4 DOS compatibility cards for it and only one PDS slot...

I failed to compile resource_dasm in a Fedora Linux VM though, so I haven't had success yet. I want to listen to the Descent Mac Shareware audio tracks.

As a matter of fact, I think the music from the Descent II Mac demo could be interesting too.
